Bij Gamers Depot hebben ze een review gemaakt van de ELSA Gloria II, een kaartje met de GeForce GPU en uitgerust met 64MB SDR geheugen. Dit kaartje is niet zomaar een GeForce en heeft wat features die je niet tegenkomt op andere, normale, GeForce kaarten (zoals een prijs van 800 dollar ):
Along with being a hardcore gamer I also work as a Multimedia Designer and 3D Artist. So along with the usual list of 2D graphic applications, I do a ton of work in 3D Studio MAX. The system I work on is an aging Intergraph system running dual PII 300Mhz CPU's and an older Intense 3D video card with 16MB of memory. Now of course this is old technology, but at its prime it was a very slick setup. The video card alone was very high-end and produced the kind of results most artist and developers needed and only for a mere 3 or 4 thousand dollars at the time. So when I plugged in the Gloria II on my home system, I wasn't sure how much faster it would be or what kind of difference to expect in comparison to the card at work. In the past I had tried other video cards at home that would seem to keep up with 3D Studio MAX at first, but after reaching certain low poly counts in my models the card would choke. So based on what I knew about the Gloria II, I figured it would probably hold up in 3D and even perform a little faster. But when I put it to the test, I literally dropped my lower jaw wide open! After a few minutes of total amazement and pure exhilaration, I had to remind myself to close my mouth because it was drying up fast! The amount of smoothness while manipulating models inside 3DSMAX was outstanding. It was literally blowing away what my system at work could only dream of.
